Computation of High Reynolds Number Flow Problems

10:30 AM-1:00 PM
Room: Sidney Smith 1073

The theme of this minisymposium can be described as mathematics as a guide for practical computations. Indeed, at sufficiently high Reynolds numbers, it is nearly impossible, within available resources, to perform simulations that have fully rigorous mathematical support at each step. It is also impossible to compute reliably without mathematical guidance based solely upon experience or physical intuition. The speakers will discuss computational fluid dynamics, mathematical understanding of the limitations of current approaches, and extension of the range of Reynolds numbers for which algorithms are viable.
